department is requesting that we use the state contract low of the city boilerplate, and this will put us in compliance with sb 785. this legislation, in regards to delivery of specialty mental health services for foster care children, and it mandates the use of standardized contracts statewide, so this would be for children that are placed out of county, and i have our director of children, youth, and families for the system of care for community behavioral health services. thank you. >> supervisors, this should give you an idea about the extent of the need. 534 children in foster care are facing -- are placed in san francisco. with the largest percentage placed in alameda county and san mateo counties. the reason they are placed in those counties is because half of them are placed with relatives, and the remaining in foster homes. they all actually have a right and need to access and services when they have the need. right now, it is not easy to enter contracts for services with them, so the change is to create more timing access for the children living with relatives outside of san fra

square feet and 600,000 square feet. that sounds big but that only puts us in competition with a city like san diego. you have hotels in las vegas that have 1 million square feet of exhibition space. even with both of these projects. -- even with both of these projects, we are still small. these things could not only help to continue the revitalization of neighborhoods -- and those of you who remember this neighborhood 30 years ago -- things have changed quite a bit. we believe this would bring increased vitality to the neighborhood, increased spending in the city that would help overall -- the overall economy. when we look at the political will, we look at financing options and opportunities to take next that's. the best opportunity is mosconi east in 2008. that would be a perfect time live from what we believe meets the demand that is growing at the moment. the last thing i want to talk about his proposition j, the proposition to increase the hotel tax. it increases it two points, 14%. it just went up 13% two years ago, so we would have a 25% increase in hotel taxes in just a few ye

information about the 2018. depending on what they are doing or not, that might necessitate us gearing up to do a fairly major effort of our own. i was wondering where that stood. >> we have worked with our agencies and provided some analyses. then we shared copies of a few samples of the results with mr. harington and his staff and came forward with no consensus recommendation from those agencies. now it is in steve's court. >> i forgot to load the presentation on the computer, so i was working. we received those examples from the bawsca customers and subsequent to that took a shot at interim supply allocation to the customers, distributing the craft form. we found out talking about these opposing concepts, nobody said anything. we now have feedback and numbers out there. we did have a meeting about two weeks ago with the customers to get feedback on that. we are working now on producing a revised draft written about and get more feedback on with the anticipation we would bring that forward to you on november 9 with perhaps not a formal recommendation but to get any policy guides, and co
